Finishing this dish with lime zest and juice brightens its rich flavors.

« Asian-Style Meat Loaves | Main | Tips From The Mother of An Almost Three Year Old »


Looking at the recipe for this week's meat loaf I remembered that I never posted the one we made a few weeks ago. The Asian Style Meat Loaves were yummy and fun to make. Other things we made last week were repeats, Angel Hair Pasta Delight and Soft Black Bean Tostadas.
Busy last week with my conferences and board meeting. I didn't get home Thursday night until 10pm. On Saturday we went to a baptism. The reception was like nothing I have ever seen before. It is what happens when a NE guy marries and has a baby with a Texas girl. The church hall was decorated to look like ranch. Complete with split rail fences, haybales and stars and lanterns. The kids got goody bags which also contained sheriff's badges with their names on them. The food was Texas barbeque and the music fit the theme. And guess who's kids both rode the mechanical bull? Twice. It was so cute because it was run at super slow speed and the corral is like a bounce house. Keegan insisted on petting the "cow" before each ride.
The weekend was pretty low key because of the frigid temps. Our Sunday playdate cancelled due to another child's ear infection. So lots of indoor games and art projects. Jeff and I watched two movies, Something New (which was okay) and Kinky Boots (which was great). The description says it all "Inspired by the true story of a traditional English men's footwear factory in Northamptonshire which turned to production of kinky boots for transvestites in order to save the ailing family business and safeguard the jobs of the local community."
Keegan started in his new classroom this week and so far he is doing well. He will celebrate his birthday on Thursday with both his old and and his new class. So tomorrow night is devoted to making tons of cupcakes. I called my mom in for reinforcements.
